Michael Elmore presented a new proposal to Leitchfield City Council regarding a use for the Alexander Hotel and Alice Theater. Elmore, who has talked with owner Jay Dinwiddle, would like to use the facility as a shelter for abused women. He explained a plan to teach the women occupational skills, serving women ages 18-30 WHO have been abused by training them in culinary arts, hospitality, restaurant management and bartending. The facility, including the restaurant, would be alcohol free and smoke free.
